The last time we stayed at a Howard Johson hotel we were less than impressed but this time we were blown away. What a great place to stay and exactly what we wanted for our visit to Disneyland - a five minute walk away! The staff were all very helpful and made us feel welcome. The room was great and although close to a major raod we could not hear the traffic. It is hard to fault this hotel for the money.

Great place friendly staff and real close to Disney. Great soundproofing on all doors and windows so no noise from the freeway. Would stay again in a heartbeat.

Hotel très bien situé avec des chambres très spacieuses et des lits d'appoint très confortables. Je n'hésiterai pas à rechoisir cet hotel pour mon prochain passage à Anaheim.

The staff was not helpful. The room was not not up to standards. Smelled bad, not sure if the sheets were as clean as they could be. There are 0 smoking rooms even if they have a balcony. On top of that the toilet was like a cheap bar toilet, felt gross just sitting on it! Save your money and go elsewhere!

The rooms were average, but the customer service was above and beyond. My three year old had a great time at the kiddie pool too!

Took the exact same trip 3 years prior but at that time we stayed at the newly remodeled Sheraton Park. This trip was every bit as nice! We were able to walk to Disneyland/California Adventure, plenty of places to eat (i.e. McDonalds, Mimi's cafe). Enjoyed the stay, both pools, and our 7 year old loved the water park on site. The store in Building 1, had everything you could want and for pretty decent prices, especially compared to Disneyland. On our final night (and a 15 hour day at Disneyland) we came back to find our room had been flooded by a AC unit leak upstairs. The management moved us to a room close by, gave a fair discount, and allowed a later checkout. No one is perfect, but we appreciated the effort in making it better for us.

With only a short walk to Disneyland this is a great place to stay - this was our third visit. Clean, comfortable with helpful staff. What more can you ask for?

The Howard Johnson Hotel is awesome! We took our two grandkids, and the little one said, "This is the best hotel EVER!" I think that he was impressed with the small water park that they have on the property. This hotel is only a couple blocks from the opening to the Disneyland Resort. And,almost as good, it is only a couple doors down from McDonald's! It is an older hotel,but it is in pristine condition. The grounds have beautiful landscaping. I was really enthralled by the trees that had giant, white flowers. They were breathtaking! There was only one small problem, and that was that the remote to the tv didn't work. Other than that, it was a great hotel with very helpful people working at the front desk!

The HoJo is close walking distance to the gates at Disney. There were restaurants in the area and they never had a wait. The pirate cove kids pool area is ok; it looks a lot bigger in the online pictures. Rooms are basic but clean.

We are repeat customers. The fact that the hotel is SMOKE FREE IS A BIG PLUS FOR US. Staff is very helpful and friendly. I wish they would provide an in room safe.

The hotel was very clean. The front desk staff was polite and helpful. We loved the fact that the hotel is Smoke Free. It was wonderful to be able to breathe. WE would stay there again IF they lower thier prices. They are getting very greedy!

Excellent place to stay! Rooms are very nicely sized and clean. There are laundry facilities on site. Check in and check out was very quick. Pools are very nice and clean. We have stayed at the Howard Johnson twice while visiting Disneyland. Of all the Non-Disney hotels in the area this is the nicest one across from the park with a great price. Highly recommended!

I was happily surprised at the Hotel. We picked it because of price and because of location. I did not expect the large, clean and very quiet room! I was also pleasantly surprised at the speed at which the hotel met our needs. We asked for a pillow and cot and got them almost immediately. We would definitely recommend.
